The Death By Audio show is real bands pretending to be other bands for Halloween. The Sublime tribute band playing Mercury Lounge tonight is a Sublime tribute band all year long. Same is true about the Smiths and Radiohead cover bands playing Littlefield this evening.

Mr. Brownstone, a Guns n Roses cover band that comes in and out of retirement, is at Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday.

Cassie & Justin from the Babies will be the White Stripes on Sunday - the same (Halloween) day that Robbers on High Street will be ELO at Mercury Lounge where a Weezer cover band will open. Mouth Breather, a Jesus Lizard cover band, plays Fontana's. And at Union Pool:

SUNDAY, 10/31, AT UNION POOL

DAMN! a Halloween tribute to WHAM! (Max & Kev of Pizza Party on EVR)
THE CURE (Warm Ghost)
VIOLENT FEMMES (McDonald's)
ELO (Members of The Mad Scene and The Flaming Fire)
DANZIG/MISFITS (Members of Love as Laughter, Children, and Violent Bullshit)
More Halloween shows listed HERE.

Past Halloween, another tribute band is coming out of retirement, a very short retirement. Tragedy played their final show in January. The All Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees plays their next show November 12th at Brooklyn Bowl (billed as their "last show ever").

The Fab Faux are performing The White Album in its entirety at Terminal 5 on December 11. Tickets go on sale at noon.

Zoso is playing 'The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience' at Music Hall of Williamsburg on January 29th. Tickets go on sale at noon.

And tribute bands are always playing BB King's.

What about Psycho 78 (Members of Titan) at Arlene's Grocery?

seriously, doing a second post on halloween cover bands and ignoring the Jesus Lizard band is a bit ridiculous. Sublime is more BV friendly than the Lizard?
